Dear Dogster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Dogster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Dogster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Dogster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

    It's easy to put a front-clip harness (like the Easy Walk) on backwards so the clip ring is on the back like a traditional harness. You could then put a carabiner on the ring to attach to the seat belt. When you get to your destination, take it off and put it on again with the ring in the front. Voila! That or buy a second harness for car safety- the Easy Walk really isn't designed for this purpose and isn't the safest choice, since it's pretty easy for a dog to slip out of and doesn't distribute the force of a sudden stop or acceleration across the chest like car harnesses do. There are many choices of car safety harnesses, and some are quite affordable. I myself own three different dog harnesses for different uses, you don't have to have one that can be everything.
